We did not make a reservation, we were just walking by and saw the sign and read the menu. An English-speaking waiter came to greet us so we entered. The margaritas were excellent.

Seafood options mostly, all very fresh. Not a lot of classic Mexican but they make fresh guacamole that's delicious and offer rice and beans. The menu is more upscale type dishes but good portions and really good.
